I’ve always considered myself a clean and tidy person.  Clean as in I scrub every inch of my house frequently, and tidy as in I regularly organize my space.  To be honest, I’ve never been the kind of person who had to say to a guest, “yeah it’s a bit messy right now…”.  However, even… Continue reading Thank you, for sparking joy.
